Drummer Al Foster has enjoyed a long career that has seen him work with Dexter Gordon, Art Pepper, Frank Morgan, Sonny Rollins, McCoy Tyner among others. ‘Inspirations And Dedications’ is an energetic 13-track offering carried by a top selection of musicians, including trumpeter Jeremy Pelt (trumpet) saxophonist Dayna Stephens, pianist Adam Birnbaum, and bassist Doug Weiss. Hancock’s ‘Cantaloupe Island’ and Miles Davis’ ‘Jean Pierre’ are handled impeccably, ‘Simone’s Dance’ and ‘Samba de Michelle’ are standouts as is the crashing ‘Ooh, What You Do To Me’. The mournful ‘Our Son’ is a sorrow filled ode while the superbly upbeat ‘Aloysius’ marks a contrast with a firey, joyous 7 1/2 minutes of post bop.
